Saturday, 25. September 2021 23:16

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (pictured) said on Saturday that Moscow will encourage the Taliban to "behave in a civilized manner."

The diplomat stated that Kremlin, alongside representatives from China and Pakistan, is currently holding consultations with the group.

"They particularly discussed the need to ensure the formation of a truly representative government body," Lavrov added, noting that the current "interim government body certainly does not reflect the entire spectrum of Afghan society in terms of ethnic and political groups."
